On the first Thursday in every month starting in July, Collaborate!! nights at Lazybones Lounge Marrickville feature 2 artists from the iHearMusic community as well as an industry QandA session. Each artist plays a one hour set and then for the finale the 2 artists collaborate by bringing their unique talents together. One plus one is three!

6PM Collaborate!! Q&A Music Industry Panel
Guided by John Wardle of the Live Music Office, iHearMusic is starting each Collaborate!! night with a Live Music Q&A in the cozy and comfy LazyBones first floor lounge. Every month our Q&A panel will include artists performing on the night, key music industry players, booking agents/managers, local Council cultural officers and others.

Calvin Welch of iHearMusic explained the idea behind Collaborate!! is to start a conversation to build our local communities and provide a networking opportunity for musicians, music lovers and other creatives to collaborate and keep our industry live and local. Calvin believes that music starts with LIVE entertainment first! iHearMusic provides a platform for musicians to interact with the audience and perform their original songs with the aim of inspiring a new generation of musicians and fans to follow in their footsteps, in other words – developing the grass roots.

John Wardle from the Live Music Office said – Usually musicians networking scenes are really late at night after the show when everyone ends up at a residency or regular gig. Collaborate nights are about doing it the other way around, where everyone can get together before the night gets underway, to check out who’s got a new thing happening and who’s playing where. Word of mouth is still the most important way to get a feel for what’s happening, to catch up with the community, and most definitely collaborate!

The 7 July  first Collaborate!! gig at LazyBones Lounge will feature blues artist  Kate Lush & Band, as well as all-time legend Glenn Cardier with his band The Sideshow. Collaborate!! nights will continue at LazyBones Lounge with different artists on the first Thursday of each month.
